Waimanalo Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu, with
five miles of undeveloped beach, white sand, turquoise water, and
stunning views of mountains ranges and off-shore islands. You will not
believe how beautiful it is here! Mostly the length of the beach is
either state park or public-accessible military reservations, making
it one of the least populated beaches on Oahu. This is one of the only
places in Hawaii where you can get away from to tourist mania, yet
still be central to all the tourist activities on the island.
Our vacation rental is ON the beach, meaning that you can walk
straight out your door, across the yard, and onto the beach without
ever seeing a car or road. Your bedroom has a beautiful panoramic view
of the water, as well as a panoramic view of the beautiful Ko'olau
mountains on the other side. The property is a beautifully-maintained
beach home with ample amenities, modern construction, and a clean
environment. You will be comfortable, clean, and peaceful.
This unit is an independent section of the home on this beautiful
property, with some shared amenities (such as washer/dryer, outdoor
shower, walkway to the water, etc.), but for the most part it is fully
independent. It has a large upstairs section with sleeping, kitchen,
casual, and patio areas, and a downstairs large room suitable for
additional sleeping and casual needs. If you have needs for more
guests, or wish to explore a larger and more high-end rental, our full
property can also be rented.
This property is in a residential neighborhood, with only a few
vacation rental prospects in the area (with even fewer on the beach!),
so if this kind of a getaway appeals to you, we encourage you to book
a reservation immediately. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience,
where you can experience Hawaii as people who live here like to
experience it, and it is perfect for the "off the beaten path" vacation!
This was our second visit to this property in Waimanalo. Laura made things very easy from booking to arrival through to checkout. Though the weather wasn't perfect during our vacation, Laura, was kind enough to check in on us to offer suggestions on where to beat the wind. The property is perfect for our family with two children who can share the large downstairs bedroom while the upper studio provides spacious comfort for those days indoor days. We'll return again because the beach access can't be beat!
The home has a gorgeous beach that's just off the backyard. There are many kids of water toys available to play with. We also enjoyed visiting with locals who are very friendly. Just Imagine a place so laid back that you can't do anything but relax. This 2bedroom 2 bath is a great place to stay with kids or another couple.
P.S. if u like delicious pork tacos u have to go to taco tuesdays at Serg's Mexican Kitchen
We stayed for a week with our 13 month old. It was, as stated above, perfect!
It's in a quiet relaxed area, the beach is beautiful, and it had everything we needed!
Beach toys, floats, umbrella, towels, etc.
The house has a cute kitchen with a stove to do some cooking and a pantry stocked with the basics. But you won't need to cook because the restaurants that are withing walking distance are delicious!! Don't miss Taco Tuesday at Serg's!
The house was very clean and comfortable! The balcony has a great view of the mountains, while the windows have a great view of the ocean. Fell asleep with the open windows letting the sound of the waves on the beach lull us to sleep every night!
The coi fish pond and bunnies were a special surprise too!
We would definitely recommend and stay again!
Laura's rental is a 2-story apt right behind her 1-story home which is on the beach. You have a nice ocean view on the top floor. Laura is both available and invisible at the same time, a refined skill of a highly experienced hostess. Bonus: You are the ONLY guests on the property. Unlike others with multiple rentals on the same lot, you don't have to coordinate driveway access, share beach equipment, and deal with potential noise. If you want to cook up a storm in a gourmet kitchen and have fluffy white down comforters, this place isn't for you (although beds were nice and firm with super soft sheets). Kitchenette has a basic 2-burner electric stovetop and smaller fridge with a full size fridge downstairs in the garage for guest use. Laura compensates by providing other essentials: coffee maker, toaster and toaster oven, rice cooker, and basic pots/pans/dishes/utensils.
The top floor is a spacious studio layout. King bed faces the ocean with the kitchenette/dining table behind it. White washed wood-looking floors and light colored fabrics give an open, airy feel. Best part about top floor: big picture windows on all 3 sides. One faces the ocean, back faces the lush Koolau mountain range, and side showcases green lawn/koi pond. Palm trees surround you on all sides. Because of all the big picture windows, it is very bright all day long. There were times I knew I should be on the beach but I didn't want to leave the apartment because I could sit there all day lounging with my Kona coffee and admiring the gorgeous views all around me! The simple and spacious bottom floor is one room with its own bathroom, perfect for our teens. 2 full size beds provided more sleeping space than the typical twin bed configuration. Not only did Laura have the usual boogie boards, but also had a surf board, stand up board, SEVERAL kayaks, and snorkel gear. Finally, there were little touches that were icing on the cake: HOT outdoor shower, fluffy throw rugs in bathrooms and all around the apartment, generous supply of towels for inside and out, and a welcome basket upon our arrival. Laura even provided a large golf umbrella since rain was in the forecast during our stay. It was the best and most personal experience we've had and we will definitely be back. Mahalo Laura!
We stayed at Laura's rental unit for 5 nights. The location on the beach was perfect and the unit was very clean and just as explained on the website. Other reviews were right on with Laura's hospitality and graciousness. She treated us like family. We had a beautiful experience and would highly recommend.
My husband and I along with our 3 year old and 17 month old boys stayed at Laura's beach house in early June 2016. I was perfection! We had such a great time. It was everything that the pictures show and then some. Our boys had plenty of space to play and "explore". They loved checking in on the koi and the little bunny rabbit in the yard everyday.
There were plenty of beach towels and the beach chairs and toys were much appreciated. It was so nice to be right on the beach. If you needed to get something from your room, it was just right there. No trudging through a crowded lobby and waiting on an elevator. Everything at Laura's is so easy! It was just what we needed with 2 small children. There are also several restaurants a mere 5 minute walk away. I don't know if we've had a more relaxed, laid-back vacation ever.
Laura is a very sweet woman. She goes out of her way to make sure you have an enjoyable experience at her place. She is never in your way but always there if you need something. I don't know how she does it. She is the perfect hostess.
Waimanalo beach is one of the most gorgeous beaches we've had the pleasure to experience. If you're even considering staying here, you should just go ahead and do it. It's a very special place. I really can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return. The memories my family made here will stay with us forever. It was very special.
Thank you, Laura!
